This project drew from every area of art, design, and technology in my toolbox. It also required that I learn new skills along the way. The Owl has 10 different movements, all controlled by its own servo. Scenes are triggered by pressing one of the large mushroom. Each of the 8 sequences has its own message and interactive qualities that will crack a joke or leave you with a bit of wisdom. The controller is Raspberry Pi based allowing for easy updating of sequences via a web interface.
From the sculpting of tree stump, to the feathering and flocking of the owl, and the engineering underneath, I truly believe that my passion and ability is captured within this animatronic. I hope that you enjoy it and share it!
